Last line in your engine description, you said Ethanol Only. Did you mean non-ethanol only?

Nice skiff. GLWS.

What is an approximate draft with fuel, two anglers and fishing gear? Thanks.
With (2) 200# guys, one on the bow and one on the platform, 19 gallons of fuel (it’s in the bow) and average gear, you can pole in 6”.

The fuel in the bow actually helps the draft, especially when you are both sitting on the cushion.

With two guys on the cushion, it’s probably more like 8-9”.

Running, with the motor up, you can run in 3-4”. Pretty much the only other boats I see where I fish are shallow sports and airboats.

This is one of the skinniest boats out there that pole well and still have a decent, dry ride.

Thanks. Does the engine need any serious work that you are aware of?

It needs nothing. It’s is great shape and impeccably maintained.

Last year I replaced the entire cooling system.

Thanks for the time. I'll seriously consider it and get back to you. Looking for a Mosquito Lagoon/Indian River skiff. Appreciate your time.
Just one more question. I know this is relative, but do you consider it tippy? Most of the folks who would be fishing with me have pretty good sea legs.

No problem. This skiff is fantastic there. It’s super easy to pole, great range, incredibly quiet, very efficient, and runs and poles super skinny.

Another last question. if I got to Nokomis, would you be willing to do a quick water test. Run it-pole it? Thanks again.
Certainly. This boat is tab, trim, and jack plate sensitive if you want to run it right.

I can seriously shorten that learning curve.
